Information about the school

Broomhill Bank is a highly successful coeducational special school, situated on two sites, for students aged 11-19, with an Education, Health and Care Plan relating to Communication, Interaction and Learning difficulties. Broomhill Bank School (West) is situated in Rusthall near Tunbridge Wells, and is the administrative centre for the school as a whole. Broomhill Bank (North) opened in September 2015 and is situated in Hextable, near Swanley.

Broomhill Bank invests a lot in employing the best staff, and in training them to achieve highly in their respective roles. We strive to employ staff who are highly self-motivated, professional, and ambitious for our students and who, within these parameters, get high satisfaction levels and enjoyment from the jobs they do.

The school is involved in a number of collaborative arrangements outside the immediate school:

We are active members of the Kent Association of Special Schools (KASS), comprising the 24 special schools across Kent as a whole. Broomhill Bank is also part of the Collaborative Learning Alliance of Special Schools (CLASS) Multi-teaching School Alliance, involving the 24 Kent special schools. Teaching School status was awarded in December 2015.

Broomhill Bank is the Service Level Agreement Holder for the Specialist Teaching and Learning Outreach Service within the Tunbridge District. This has resulted from an agreement with Kent Local Authority in September 2012 to devolve the centralised Specialist Teaching and Learning Service out to 12 of Kent’s special schools, to combine with existing outreach resources. We deploy this resource to support children and young people with SEND in schools and Early Years settings across the Tunbridge Wells District.
